At the heart of the vibrant user experience (UX) community, there is a confusing, tangled web of terms. A rich, complex language has developed alongside the core design concepts and techniques of UX. As you can already see, this language draws on a fair amount of acronyms!
Across various projects, the team realised that clients, prospects and even new staff are not entirely fluent in this language. Truthfully, it can be so varied that even other design and development teams do not ‘talk UX’ in quite the same way as us.
We were determined to create a clever tool that could change this situation. Instead of simply opting to create a traditional website glossary, we realised much more could be achieved by building UX Companion, a native app. We planned to release the project for iOS initially, and support Android at a later stage.
UX Companion aimed to demystify terminology. Developed as a fun research and development project, it would be launched as a free resource for the digital community.
